who stood at the edge of our stage, the loud roars when one of us said something about president obama, their deep concentration watching him on our big screen as he spoke last night. i don't know what this means for november. we're going to get serious economic reports between now and then and we'll know if the economy's slowing down or beginning to perk. the news we got this morning wasn't satisfactory by anyone's standards. but the real question is how the voters look at this election. will they view it as a choice between two candidates or as an up or down referendum on president obama. a brutally tough standard by the way so soon after the financial crash of 2008 and '09. m steve steven mm orsa is here and steven mensa is a democratic strategist. president obama last night kept pushing the idea that this election is a choice among voters rather than a referendum. we counted 20 times he uttered a variation of choose or choice, the very words themselves. take a look. >> when all is said and done, when you pick up that ballot to vote, you will face the clearest choice of any time in

(laughter) >> that blew me away i worked hard for it, but we spend it. that's ridiculous, that's crazy. and i just don't get it. by the way, i thought the democratic convention was so mean-spirited, so anti-american, that it's hard for me to believe this country is tilting in that direction. >> i was-- i'm fascinated by the political strategy here, just without taking a side, the democrats are out there saying, we want -- you know, we love the free market system, we just want to create this safety net just in case you have another 2008. the republicans saying, kind of the flip side of that. now, we're free market, but we are -- we are making these cuts so we can, you know, just in case anything happens, you do have a safety net. and they're both coming out with a sort interesting variations on the same theme. >> neil: you know, ben stein. you have to look at it. one thing i did notice is that both are very comfortable like i said, their own respective skin. and republicans are a funny time with, you know, mitt romney early on and
the presidency. >> we continue this evening with a look at president obama from two people who have written extensively about him, they are peter baker of "the new york times" and jonathan alter. >> if you look at it just in terms of his accomplishments, if you go down the list of what got done in the first two years, he obliterates bill clinton in terms of achievements as law is passed which is often the way that presidents are judged, obviously clinton had a better economy and conditions of the country were better, he did better on deficit reduction. >> but in terms of changing the structure of government and laws with long-term impact on all kind of things that people don't even think about from mileage standards to stirring up tens of billions of dollars for student loans, for people who are going to college. >> and the end of obama care and nobody knows about it, there are about a dozen major accomplishments that compare favorably to lyndon johnson. >> politics, conventions and the president in context. when we continue. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following. captionin

, that was the scene on thursday night, following barack obama's acceptance speech in charlotte, bringing the three-day democratic convention to a close. we'll talk about the media coverage of the president's speech in a minute. but first, something that happened earlier in the the week which most of the media seemed to ignore. >> i'll do that one more time. all those delegates in favor say aye. >> aye. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no. >> in the opinion of the chair, two-thirds have voted in the affirmative, the motion is adopted and the platform has been amended as shown on the screen. >> jon: that's los angeles mayor, the chairman of the democratic convention calling for a third vote to amend their platform, this time to include god and reconfirm jerusalem as the capital of israel. it didn't seem to get much attention in the mainstream media, jim. why not? >> it could be because the mainstream media didn't want to make the democrats look bad. by contrast, if this would have been the republican, the chairman of the republican convention would have done the voice votes. it didn't appea

obama still isn't doing enough, check this out. in the 37 months following the recession, about 3.5 million private-sector jobs have been created. but in the 37 months after any 2001 recession, 1.1 million private sector jobs were created. the bush administration created far fewer jobs than the obama administration. but the devastating layoffs is making this recovery even slower than it needs to be because in june jail economies, peter schott and ben polok suggested that the national unemployment rate would be a full point lower if the government sector rebounded as it has in previous sectors. joining me now is laura tyson. she is a member of president obama's council on jobs and competitiveness. and we're also joined by larry cohen, president of the communication workers of america. he represents 700,000 workers across the u.s. and canada, including 140,000 public-sector employees. to both of you, welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you jennifer. >> great to be with you. >> jennifer: great to have you, larry. let me start with laura first. we have
